I applied this change on top of your patches and tested it on a Kirkwood
Openblocks A6 board, using a resume=/dev/sda2 kernel parameter (iow, without

On the other side, this board has no pm_power_off() support, which means
kernel_halt() is called after kernel_power_off().

I'm not sure if a NULL pm_power_off() is supported, but this makes my kernel
crash in a reboot notifier that's called twice (first in kernel_power_off
and then in kernel_halt):
